  1. Anyone know same but for Paramount+ down in the states? @maplebanana? I'll be mid-flight so need a backup if can't stream live...
  2. I read it the other way, that they were going on stale reports. Andi specifically mentioned the blanket ban from Ligue 1 which we've subsequently seen adjusted as long as protocols are in place... hopefully that's the case.
  3. Some surprises in there for sure. Formation change coming as well it seems
  4. Cool. Works for me. Buddies are bailing so may just be me at this point, but am trying to round up a couple others.
  5. Oddly moments after saying he is still being evaluated Gregg confirms no Pulisic. Huge opportunity now to lock up spot in the HEX More details in quote: "Christian is officially at this stage ruled out. We just got that information. This was a collaborative decision with the club. looking after the best interest of the player. These decisions are always difficult because this group and the coaching staff want nothing more than to have Christian here, but it was a risk we weren’t willing to take at this time" https://twitter.com/USMNT/status/1193997226768568321 https://twitter.com/USMNT/status/1193997227443785728
  6. I'm down to settle on Smithfield if that works for you @ESG Shawn I was the only Voyageur at the AO bar for the 2011 GC game and they were more than hospitable. Probably had something to do with the 2-0 win but they bought me a couple post-game rounds. Only slightly made up for the "it's all your fault" chants on the goals
  7. From the release: "Of note, both Atiba Hutchinson of Beşiktaş JK in Turkey and Cyle Larin of SV Zulte Waregem in Belgium, were unavailable for the camp through personal reasons and will remain with their clubs through the international window." Interesting phrasing there. Wonder what is going on behind the scenes. Robs us of some good depth.
  8. I live down here. Was planning on watching at home with a few buddies but this sounds like a much better idea. Keep us updated on venue
  9. https://fcbayern.com/en/amp/news/2019/11/fc-bayern-relieve-head-coach-niko-kovac-of-his-duties Assistant coach in charge "until further notice". Hopefully he rates Phonzie / his recent performances when the injured starters are healthy again
  10. USMNT roster released. Jozy and Bradley called so hopefully draws in more TFC fans
  11. TSN broadcast during game just now said a couple of friendlies expected before Gold Cup. Guess that unasked question last night at the gathering is answered hah
  12. Looks like he made it to YVR after all. Hard to question his commitment to the team if he's flying half way across the world to cheer on the boys. Great to see
  13. "The kid was devastated. As a coach you're always upset, but you can look down this roster and there's some really good players to step through. But I was just so gutted for him. He was so excited to come back. He had some tears on the phone. He actually couldn't finish his sentences. Someone else picked the phone off him at one point. You feel for him because this meant a lot to him,” concluded Herdman." https://concacafnationsleague.com/en/article/canada-boss-herdman-sees-opportunities-for-others-amid-davies-absence John really going into detail. Tough for Davies but good to see how much repping Canada means to him
  14. A couple morning-after points from our pitch-side vantage: * Field was incredibly bumpy. I know we always talk about pitch quality away in CONCACAF, but in-person it's much more obvious of an issue. Lots of passes bouncing over feet or changing direction last-second, making it hard to play one-touch. Yes we had more-defensive MFs playing in attacking roles due to Oso/Scotty missing, but a lot of the timidity in central MF seemed to be borne out of caution to minimize counters. Team was very vocal when a SKN got anywhere near a canMNT and saw a lot of backpasses rather than turns upfield (SKN much more aggressive / successful on these balls). As frustrating as it was to see lack of aggressiveness going forward it was clear Herdman wanted them thinking defence first. * SKN was very physical and finished many tackles pretty late. Surprised there weren't more yellows on both sides. * As others have stated need to see Davies more forward up the field. When he's attacking one-on-one and has an overlapping teammate offering an outlet / drawing defenders he was very dangerous. Could have had one or two if not for their keeper. * Shaky start but by 2H could see/hear the team was much more confident on the ball and moving better off it. Created at least three clear chances they should have potted. A lot of people like to take the pessimistic angle but given SKN only had a couple of half-chances (at best) and we created much better in 2H this could have easily been 3-0. * Friendly hosts, no issues at all. Pales in comparison to horror stories from Central American away games.
